Performer: Freddy Martin and his Orchestra; Jack Fina Pianist. Digitized at 78 revolutions per minute. Four stylii were used to transfer this record. They are 3.8 mil truncated eliptical, 2.3 mil truncated conical, 2.8 mil truncated conical, 3.3 mil truncated eliptical. These were recorded flat and then also equalized with Turnover: 450.0, Rolloff: -10.5. The preferred versions suggested by an audio engineer at George Blood, L.P. have been copied to have the more friendly filenames. Matrix...
